Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The C4 Spacetourer undercuts equivalent versions of the Volkswagen Golf SV and BMW 2 Series Active Tourer on price, and reasonable discounts are available from your dealer if you’re prepared to haggle. A Renault Scenic is a little cheaper, though.

Resale values aren’t anything to write home about, but the C4 Spacetourer won’t shed its worth as quickly as most big Citroëns and company car drivers will also be quids in, thanks to the low CO2 emissions – especially from the 1.6 diesel engines.

Citroën finished a lowly 28th place out of 32 manufacturers in our latest reliability survey, while the C4 Spacetourer finished rock bottom of the MPV class.

Thankfully, every new Citroën gets a three-year warranty, with the first two years covered for unlimited mileage, while the final year is provided by the Citroën dealer the car was sourced from (just bear in mind that the dealer warranty is limited to cars with less than 60,000 miles on the clock). However, Scenics get an even better four-year warranty.

Safety and security


Scores well on refinement and quality, but this version doesn't make as much sense as the seven-seater

  • Spacious and practical cabin
  • Good visibility
  • Most versions are generously equipped
  • The ride is unsettled at low speeds
  • Touchscreen control system is confusing
  • Not as spacious as the VW Golf SV
